Fight the recession with Taco Tuesday at El Torrito in Redondo Beach

El Torrito? Yuk!  That's what I used to say, but now I am a big fan of Taco Tuesday at El Torrito.  For under $20, you and your date can enjoy tacos, margaritas and unlimited chips and salsa.  Tacos are only $1 and margaritas are half off which comes out to only $3.50.  Tacos are made to order.  The "taco lady" makes the corn tortilla by hand right in front of you.  The taco choices are pork, beef (carne asada) and chicken.  My favorite is beef.  2 tacos are enough for me and my husband gets full from 3 tacos.

Another reason for recommending this as a cheap date is the location.  The one in Redondo Beach sits on the Redondo pier overlooking the beach with Palos Verdes as a backdrop.  The window seats are for dining only, where as Taco Tuesday occurs in the bar area.  However, if you get there early enough, you can find plenty of seats in the bar near the dining area where you have the same great view.  We usually go around 8 to 8:30 after work, and had no problem getting tables with a view.

So not bad, huh?  Beach front dining for under $20 for two.  Who can beat that?

Mmmmm, tacos and a margarita sound so good right now :)  According to @laurasauls, Ortega 120, also in Rodondo Beach, has cheap tacos and margaritas during happy hour!  Don't know about the view though :P
